Grace Jones: Bloodlight and BAMI

I am fortunate to have WPKN-FM/Bridgeport hosting the Music on Film series right in my  backyard.  I have previously attended films about the blues, Sidemen, Long Road to Glory and Chasing Trane  about John Coltrane.

This week Music on Film presents Grace Jones: Bloodlight and BAMI on Thursday December 6th at 7:00 p.m. at the Bijou Theatre in downtown Bridgeport.

A portion of the ticket sales benefits WPKN-FM my favorite public radio station.

I’m eager to learn more about Grace Jones 🙂

Irie Feelings Radio, WPKN-FM, DJ Dave-O

I was dial twisting earlier today and came across a bombastic radio show on listener sponsored WPKN-FM 89.5. The program was titled: “Irie Feelings Radio”, the disk jockey was a cat by the name of Dave-o. He definitely had his groove on. He was playing a great mix of Jamaican Dub music which settled in perfect on the car audio system.

He turned me on to a Jamaican reggae deejay that I was totally unfamiliar with, Prince Far I.  The more he played tracks by the Prince of Peace, the more I dug it. Dub is infectious.

The late Prince Far I recorded some cool sounds. I am liking the recording, Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter 1, immensely.
